Tucson raises fines for parking violations
UMC to study cooling care for cardiac arrest in kids By Michelle A. Weiss DAILY WILDCAT
“We don’t want to see someone’s driveway get blocked or someone not be able to park at their own house because a student took their spot,” he said. Sheila Hoban, vice president of the Sam Hughes Neighborhood Association, said the
The University Medical Center has joined a large-scale multicenter study that examines body-cooling treatment in children after cardiac arrest. “This will be the largest study of its kind,” said Dr. Andreas Theodorou, a pediatric intensive care specialist for the Steele Children’s Research Center and pediatrics professor. The Therapeutic Hypothermia After Pediatric Cardiac Arrest (THAPCA) trials first began in 2002 and are based at the University of Michigan, Theodorou said. Diamond Children’s Medical Center at UMC joined the study this past month, and will work with it for four years. The National Institutes of Health and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute funded the $21 million study, which is divided between all 32 affiliated sites. “It’s a tough study to do because you have to talk to parents in what is the most stressful time anyone can ever imagine,” Theodorou said. “It does create a challenge and requires a lot of sensitivity and compassion when we approach the parents to enroll them (the children) in the study.” Past studies have suggested that adults who have had a cardiac arrest will have less brain injury and a better neurologic outcome if they have been kept cold, Theodorou said. This is where the THAPCA trials come in. “We’re not completely sure if hypothermia is the correct treatment to do in post cardiac arrest with children because there hasn’t really been a clinical trial that looks at specifically children,” said Jen Deschenes, a public health graduate student and the research coordinator for the study. The study compares the aggressive control of body temperature in children by keeping the temperature cold — at 33 degrees Celsius or 89.6 to 93.2 degrees Fahrenheit as opposed to a normal temperature of 98 degrees, Theodorou said. The THAPCA trials will analyze an inpatient group (inhospital cardiac arrest) and an outpatient group (cardiac arrest outside of the hospital). “These are patients anywhere from 2 days of age to 18 years of age that have suffered cardiac arrest,” Theodorou said. However, cardiac arrest is not common in children.

Fees among highest for US cities; charges at UA will remain the same By Rebecca Rillos DAILY WILDCAT
Drivers who frequent downtown and the neighborhoods surrounding the UA campus could be affected by a new $13 increase in fines if they park illegally. As of July, the new state surcharge, passed by the state Legislature, has made Tucson’s parking fines the third highest in the nation, behind only New York City and San Francisco. Parking violations, previously $49, are now $62. The $13 increase is also added onto any civil or criminal violations. “It’s not fair at all,” said Phil Tilson, an
environmental sciences senior. “Look at how densely populated and tight New York and San Francisco are. I can understand that, but Tucson barely has a million people.” The UA has no current plans to increase its fines for parking violations, said David Heineking, director of Parking and Transportation Services. Fees for common violations such as overtime parking, meter violations and parking without a permit are currently set at $25. “Overtime parking is pretty common,” Heineking said. “If you’re not sure if you can make it back in 20 minutes, you are probably better off parking at a meter or in a garage.” Commuters to the UA who park in the neighborhoods surrounding campus such as Sam Hughes, Pie Allen and North University could be fined if they park without a permit on designated streets. Heineking said that there are students who park in the neighborhoods, but PTS tries to discourage it.
Where does the $13 fee increase go? • $8 – Arizona’s public safety fund • $4 – citing agency for officer safety equipment • $1 – justice courts Source: Arizona Department of Public Safety
Sororities welcome largest pledge class in UA history By Eliza Molk DAILY WILDCAT
Before the semester began, many women contemplated what type of housing would best suit them. Last week, more women than ever joined a different type of house. The UA saw more women join sororities this academic year than any other because of increased marketing and a rise in sorority popularity nationally. Panhellenic Council President Jessica Hermann said that her council, the governing body which oversees 14 sorority chapters and their members, kicked up its marketing strategy. It did so by sending out a greater number of emails to potential recruits of “The Bond,” a guide to UA Greek Life, and passing out the guides at orientation sessions in addition to handing out information sheets to freshmen and their parents. It then emailed the women who filled out the sheets to remind them of upcoming recruitment dates and deadlines. “We got a couple hundred interested girls just from that information sheet,” Hermann said.

“If you’re not in a sorority, you’re the minority.” — Chanler Skeffington psychology freshman, Delta Gamma member
More than 1,200 women rushed to join a sorority and about 79 percent were given a bid, or an invitation to join a sorority, according to Jenny Nirh, a senior coordinator for sorority programs at the UA. This is also an increase from last year when 1,100 women rushed and 75 percent received bids. Some women were interested in joining a sorority because an elder family member or friend was in one. Alexa Testa, an undeclared freshman and a new member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, said she wanted to get involved in Greek Life because her cousin was involved in it and it looked like a “great experience.” “I thought it would be a great opportunity

to meet new people,” she said. “It’s also a way to help stay involved in your community by doing philanthropies.” For others like Chanler Skeffington, a psychology freshman and a new member of Delta Gamma, Greek Life involvement is a staple in the college experience. Skeffington said that sororities will allow her to experience sisterhood, events, school spirit and philanthropy, all in one club. “If you’re not in a sorority, you’re the minority,” she explained. According to the Panhellenic Council website, an estimated 13 percent of UA students are involved with Greek Life. The increased sorority involvement at the UA is in congruence with the national trend. Across the country, membership increased by about 15 percent from 2008 to 2011, according to a press release from the National Panhellenic Conference. Hermann said that she believes women are becoming more interested in sorority

The Lab tries to break the ‘cursed’ spot’s history on University Boulevard By Cecelia Marshall Daily Wildcat
University Boulevard seems like the perfect place to open shop. It’s close enough to campus to be named “University,” after all, and already hosts an alluring lineup of restaurants and shiny boutiques. Main Gate Square boasts eateries and trendy clothing stores, and is held in high esteem by college students striving to get offcampus, as well as visiting parents and hungry faculty. You might think that once a business sets up shop along UA’s “Rodeo Drive,” its finances soar and its success can keep it in business forever. Thanks to the captive market, it would seem hard to go wrong. But one space, 944 E. University Blvd., fails to capitalize. Some even call it “cursed.” This space is like University Boulevard’s version of the “Defense Against the Dark Arts” teaching position at Hogwarts. But The Lab is hoping to win where so many have struck out. It stands where O’Hungry’s once endured the “curse.” O’Hungry’s first opened in the spring of 2010, but it wasn’t long
until this San Diego dive lost its original allure and the space stood vacant. Chow Bella, an Italian restaurant, inhabited the space before O’Hungry’s, but quickly lost steam as well. Since its opening in May of this year, The Lab has blasted popular rock and roll music from its outdoor patio and tried to entice potential customers by offering different fare than Espresso Art, its next-door neighbor. The family-run restaurant has a unique story: It was started by a lad who decided to put all of his chemistry knowledge from the UA to better use by serving 1/2 yard drinks from glass test tubes and beakers. But this restaurant’s quirky charm may not be enough to escape the disadvantages of the unassuming location. While the owners try unsuccessfully to cover the forest green outdoor walls with a generic banner offering happy hour specials, a lot needs to be reinvented indoors. Half-Grecian columns jut from the sponge-painted yellow walls, undoubtedly remnants from the

space’s past tenants. A newly installed bar also doesn’t make up for the lack of mad chemistthemed decor. Nonetheless, this family
restaurant is determined to conquer the negativity and looming “curse.” The Lab may be able to beat out all the superstitiodedxus mumbojumbo with help from Tucsonans

Acting ATF chief, US attorney in Phoenix step down in wake of ‘Fast and Furious’ debacle Mcclatchy tribune
WASHINGTON — The head of the beleaguered Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. attorney in Phoenix were removed from their jobs by Justice Department officials hoping for a fresh start for an agency whose employees had expressed a lack of confidence in their leadership. But congressional Republicans vowed to ratchet up their investigation of the failed Fast and Furious gun-tracing program, which sent hundreds of guns to Mexican drug cartels. They are preparing for a
new round of hearings into who else was involved at other law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Justice Department itself. The announcements on Tuesday that Acting ATF Director Kenneth E. Melson and U.S. Attorney Dennis K. Burke were leaving their posts came after Obama administration officials said they had received a series of messages from ATF employees expressing a deep “lack of confidence” in the leadership. “We heard from special agents-
in-charge and field agents, they reached out to us,” said an administration official. Melson was called to the deputy attorney general’s office on Friday and told it was in the “best interest” of the bureau that he move on, and he agreed, sources said. He is being transferred to senior adviser on forensic science in the Office of Legal Policy, a division in the Justice Department that helps on long-range planning issues. Burke, whose office provided the legal guidance for Fast and Furious, acknowledged to Justice officials
in Washington earlier this month that a clean slate in Phoenix was needed for federal law enforcement officials working the U.S.-Mexico border, according to congressional sources. In addition to Burke, Emory Hurley, the top assistant federal prosecutor in Phoenix, was moved Monday from the criminal division in the U.S. attorney’s office in Phoenix to handling civil matters instead. In an email to the ATF staff, Melson, who has maintained he was kept in the dark about the

did not feel the need to rush because she dislikes how women become after joining sororities. “They are more snooty and put themselves out there too much,“ she said. “College is not just about looks and partying.” Alexandra Rickert, a pre-physiology freshman, said that although she considered rushing, she decided against it. Rickert explained that while sororities have many great things to offer, she does not “play well into that sisterhood mentality.” “I think it’s a two-fold,” she said. “On one end, women are learning how useful a sorority is for networking. On another end, I believe Greek Life is used largely as a means of fitting in on campus.”

permits should make sure their permit is clearly displayed and not expired. She recommended drivers who frequent downtown use public garages and pay when they return to their vehicles to avoid overtime parking at meters. “It’s crazy to risk that amount of money for five minutes,” McDonald said.

In the study, two randomized groups will be evaluated and given care, he said. Eligible patients have a 50/50 chance of being put in the hypothermia (cooling) group or the normothermia (normal temperature) group, Deschenes said. Diamond Children’s anticipates five to six children will be eligible for the study. Nationally, the centers are aiming for 800 to 900 participants, Theodorou said. “Both groups are considered a treatment group. Both groups will have aggressive control of their temperature to avoid fever,” Theodorou said. “The actual testing is during the first four to eight hours. They will be aggressively cooled and their temperature is controlled with a piece of equipment — a blanket that adjusts temperature.” The blanket will warm or cool the body to “keep it to that precise temperature,” he said. The temperature will be monitored two different ways. One thermometer will measure temperature in the esophagus and another will measure temperature another way, Theodorou said. “In addition, there will be careful monitoring of all vital signs and an assortment of blood tests to make sure there’s no complications from the cooling or warming process,” he said. After patients have finished the “maintaining of the temperature phase,” they will return to normal temperature.
For more information To learn more about the Therapeutic Hypothermia After Pediatric Cardiac Arrest (THAPCA) trials, visit www.thapca.org.
Patients will also have evaluations over the phone and come back a year after their cardiac arrest for a detailed neurologic exam and a neurobehavioral evaluation, he said. Because of the data collected from adults, people have inferred that hypothermia is the right treatment for children as well, Theodorou said but “really that question has not been answered. “The reality is, some of the studies that have been done in other populations strongly suggest that fever is bad, but they don’t adequately prove that hypothermia or cooling is good,” he said. Adults tend to have cardiac arrests due to primary heart problems, while children tend to have them because of a lack of oxygen, Theodorou said. One question is if a child suffering cardiac arrest is different from an adult. That question can only be answered by studying children directly, he said. “We (Diamond Children’s) now feel we can compare and sometimes even compete with the major children’s hospitals in the country, so a project like this is exactly what we should participate in,” Theodorou said.

Rob Dyrdek, host of the new reality show “Ridiculousness,” takes its cues from other YouTube video comedy shows like “Tosh.0.” The new MTV show, however, fails to live up to the same standard.
‘Ridiculousness’ rips off other, better TV shows By Ashley Pearlstein
ust when we thought the continuous thread of failed MTV series could not get any longer, Rob Dyrdek’s “Ridiculousness” was born. As predicted by many, “Ridiculousness” was a disappointment. The show revolves around Dyrdek, Sterling “Steelo” Brim and Chanel “West Coast,” the token know-nothing blonde, commenting on some of the most popular and laugh-worthy videos on YouTube. You may think this sounds familiar. Comedy Central’s “Tosh.0” already crafted a hit show playing on the popularity of many YouTube sensations. Any show with the same idea would need killer comedy, new material and a better supporting cast to succeed. All of these vital elements were sadly left out of “Ridiculousness,” and the half-hour segment got old fast. The beauty of “Tosh.0” is the commentary and genuine hilarity of Daniel Tosh. In contrast, Dyrdek’s remarks lacked material and originality, which got annoying quickly. Perhaps the show would have been bearable if put on mute. As if Dyrdek’s contribution was not enough, the rare and short-lived comments from his peanut gallery were even worse. “Steelo” Brim barely spoke and Chanel “West Coast” proved
to be the stereotypical blonde by giggling and making dumb remarks. Anyone who can log onto the Internet can do Dyrdek’s job, so save yourself the torture of sitting through the show and look up the videos yourself for a good laugh. The most (and only) amusing part of “Ridiculousness” was the string of top-rated videos he found online, half of which have already been used on “Tosh.0.” With an untalented cast, horrible writers and an idea copied from a hit show with an already developed fan base, “Ridiculousness” was sure to fail. It is sad to see that MTV, the once great organization, honored as the creator of music television, has come to this. MTV’s once weighty impact on the music industry is gone and replaced by atrocious trash television. The complete trash that is “Ridiculousness” seems miniscule compared to that of “Death Valley,” “I Just Want my Pants Back” and “Skins.” For whatever reason, MTV has thrown its reputation out the window, playing only shows that teach America’s youth about sex, drugs, alcohol and just about any other inappropriate thing you can think of. “Ridiculousness” is a direct reflection of the tasteless organization that created it. — Ashley Pearlstein is a journalism junior.

Southern Arizona’s best wine tastings Arts & Life’s weekly recommendations for how to spend your upcoming weekend By Joe Dusbabek Daily Wildcat
Southern Arizona hardly (if ever) makes the list of hotspots for the best winegrowing regions in America. Our arid climate and rampant burning sunshine alone make us the furthest thing from Napa Valley, Calif., or Oregon. It’s easy to assume winetasting would be impossible here, so you might be surprised to learn that two wineries are within driving distance of Tucson. You can find Charron Vineyards, one of Southern Arizona’s oldest vineyards, only 30 minutes from downtown Tucson. Charron Vineyards is a two-person enterprise run by Milton and Susan Craig, and the couple clearly cares about keeping the traditional winetasting experience intact and affordable: Four wine tastings and a souvenir glass sets you back only $5, which more than offsets the cost of gas to drive out to the winery. Charron specializes in making both white and red merlots; the white merlot won the Governor’s Choice Award in 2000 and has
Charron Vineyards 18585 S. Sonoita Highway Vail, AZ 85641 (520) 762-8585 Public tasting hours are Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and other days by appointment.
consistently sold out ever since. The vineyards use four acres of land to make the wine and none of it’s wasted; along with merlot, Charron also produces an Arizona syrah and a blanc de noir. For a short trip out of Tucson, you can’t do better. If you’re willing to drive a bit further away to Elgin, Ariz., you’ll find a larger winefocused experience waiting to welcome you at Kief-Joshua Vineyard. The 15-acre vineyard was founded in 2005 under the direction of Kief Manning, a former Arizona State University student, and had its first harvest quite recently in 2008. Don’t let your Sun Devil hate get in the way of visiting, though — Manning has undoubtedly created one of Arizona’s premier vineyards.
Manning says he believes in a very hands-on approach, as he leads all tastings personally, and he refuses to use herbicides or pesticides of any kind. The vineyard even uses organic recycling and sustainable farming techniques, so it’s as green as can be — and we mean that in a good way. The quality of Manning’s wines matches his passion; I’ve personally tried the vineyard’s “Cephus” white (a homebrewed mixture of chardonnay and pinot blanc), and it’s nothing less than excellent. Surrounded by mountains and placed right in the beautiful sunshine, the physical location of the vineyard isn’t too shabby either on a beautiful, warm day. If you’re into in a varied and ecologically-friendly wine-tasting experience, there’s no need to look any further than Elgin.
Kief-Joshua Vineyards 370 Elgin Road Elgin, AZ 85611 (520) 455-5582 Open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., offering six wines for tasting.

Pick up the phone to call, not text Kelly Hultgren Daily Wildcat
o, I met this guy last week and I thought he really liked me, because he was texting me all the time, and then suddenly he started taking longer to respond. I think he’s not interested anymore. You better believe, I am not texting him until he texts me first. I can’t believe he led me on like that.” Does that sound familiar? That’s because you’ve probably heard someone say it or have said it yourself. Perhaps not word for word, but please raise your hand if you’ve ever made assumptions at the beginning of a relationship, based solely on texts? My hand just hit the ceiling. Once upon a time, people pursuing potential mates evaluated each other on personality, looks, lifestyle and how the person felt he or she was being treated. People always will base their opinions on the categories listed above, but now, a more relevant and scrutinized trait is a person’s texting habits. People, especially us college students, rely on texting to get to know someone. Both men and women are equally guilty of this. We are all busy, and texting is quick and convenient and facilitates communication throughout the day. I’ve used those arguments too. But instead of spending three hours on Facebook or watching TV, pick up the damn “The use of texting phone, call and meet in person. to get acquainted For budding with someone is relationships, really just a small texting is not portion of humanity’s only used as a increasing problem screening device, of becoming socially but also as a dealbreaker. It sounds inept. I said socially absolutely ridicuinept, not social lous because it networking inept, is. From simply as in not being able looking to get to communicate some action to embarking on with someone face a long-lasting to face.” romantic journey, cellular discourse is now crucial in the process. Take my starting quote, for example. The pothetical girl first assumed the hypothetical guy liked her and then assumed he didn’t based only on his texting frequency. What if the poor guy was having phone issues or was working? You’re just getting started, don’t expect him to drop the whole world just to send back a response to your simple “hey” text message. This example addresses some aspects of texting: You don’t know what the person is physically doing and you cannot tell the person’s mood (emoticons do not count). Therefore, one of every student’s favorite forms of interaction is inherently deceiving. At the start of a relationship, why do we communicate and subsequently put so much emphasis on texting, when it’s not a reliable source to get to know someone? As I mentioned before, texting can be a dealbreaker. Let’s classify some different types of texters and how they might mislead people: First up, we have Lazy Texters. Lazy Texters often initiate the conversation, and then leave the responsibility of carrying on the conversation with the other person, rarely asking questions and usually responding with one-word answers. Then we have the Minimalists. Minimalists make their texts short, concise, and often take longer to respond. They are also notorious for ignoring people, but you would never know this, because you didn’t call. This leads us to another bittersweet characteristic of texting: you really don’t know if someone has seen your text or not (unless you have Blackberry Messenger, then your cover is blown). The next type is the Stage Five Clinger, who will constantly blow up your phone wanting to know what you’re doing, where you’re going, and where you live. This texter sometimes sends text after text, even when you’re not responding. Creepy. A less creepy yet still consistent type of texter is the Text-a-holic. They are constantly texting — regardless of who it is — and they experience separation anxiety when away from their phones. The use of texting to get acquainted with someone is really just a small portion of humanity’s increasing problem of becoming socially inept. I said socially inept, not social networking inept, as in not being able to communicate with someone face to face. The next time you meet someone and get that warm and fuzzy feeling in your tummy, break through the technological barricade and get to know the person in person. And, please refrain from sending the emoticon with hearts for its eyes. — Kelly Hultgren is a journalism junior. She can be reached at email@example.com.

Required participation points devalue degrees Storm Byrd Daily Wildcat
ith students settling into their second week of classes, there is a possibility that some have already begun to fall into a relaxed lull. Some freshmen may even already be ditching classes, or at least considering it. But beware, although you’re not in high school anymore, most of your professors will treat you like you are with attendance and participation points. Instructors often sneak in a 20 percent attendance or participation grade in an effort to encourage students to show up and take part in the classroom activities, or so they say. Many times, it seems as though the only motive behind this is to make sure they have an audience of more than five students for their bland and boring lectures. Several instructors will say that if you’re going to learn, you need to be present and engaged with the material being covered. So for some reason, professors will reward or deduct points from you if you don’t show up and raise your hand. Shouldn’t a student’s stellar or horrible grade on exams and papers be the reward or punishment for skipping your twice weekly 8 a.m. snore fest?
“This is college. Stop making it
high school, please. Participation incentives, or deductions, have no place here.” This is college. Stop making it high school, please. Participation incentives, or deductions, have no place here. A student shouldn’t be rewarded for showing up and spouting out the occasional “I don’t get it,” or “could you say that again?” remark. What’s even more sickening is that these “thanks for coming” points don’t end once you complete your mostly meaningless general education courses. Well into my third year of studies here at the UA, I’m entrenched in upper division courses, the courses where the material is supposedly so dense and so complex you must first complete a series of prerequisites to thoroughly prepare you. Nonetheless, I still see a nice 20 percent freebie points section titled “participation” on the syllabus. Yes, free and easy points rock; there is no doubting that, but at what point does
personal responsibility kick in? What does it matter if I go to class and space out or if I stay home and blow off some lectures? It’s my education, I’m responsible for it. Professors aren’t parents, and we’re all legal adults here. If I don’t need to go to class to disassemble your easy exams and get an “A,” why can’t I just stay home and enjoy that low-maintenance grade? How does me showing up and proving I have a pulse make any difference whatsoever? On the opposite end of the spectrum, why does a student who struggles by with a 60 percent get to have their lackluster knowledge rewarded by planting themselves in a chair and raising their hand a few times? The old days of getting an “A” for effort are long since past, or at least they’re supposed to be. Your college diploma is meant to be proof that you mastered the knowledge required to pass and earn a degree in your major. The diploma isn’t a certificate of attendance, so stop treating it like one, please. If a student masters the knowledge and proves it on exams, why does it matter if they sporadically came to class? There’s no doubt that going to class is helpful most of the time, but there is no sense in rewarding students with the consolation prize of a participation grade. If a lecture is as pressing as the professor would like you to think it is, then you’ll know it when your grade dips or jumps after skipping or attending a lecture. — Storm Byrd is the Perspectives editor for the Daily Wildcat.

Problems in Libya are just beginning
y now we have all heard about the ongoing battle in Libya for control of the country. If you haven’t heard, where exactly have you been? After a long battle that began in February, the Libyan rebels have successfully ousted Col. Moammar Gadhafi and his family from their near 42-year reign over the country. This comes as a huge success for rebels, who have been fighting very hard for change in the country over the past six months, but now the real problems are about to begin. At this point in time, many different sects of Libyan rebels have all joined together in their efforts to bring down Gadhafi. Now
that the dictator has been removed, the task of how to run the country is going to come into full swing. The truth is that the overwhelming majority of the rebels don’t have a clue as to how to run a country of more than 6 million people. All of these Libyan rebels have been fighting for a new democracy, but they don’t have any perception on how to enforce this new democracy. Many of these rebels have different ideas on what new systems should be implemented. The opposition is going to push for a democracy that leans more toward the United States, while other rebels are likely to try and institute Shariah Law in
the country. It will not be surprising to see Libyan rebels begin to turn on each other in the coming days. Now that all of the rebels have accomplished the same set task, we will begin to see what underlying motives each of these sects envisions as their idea of change and democracy. These Libyan rebels saw the removal of Gadhafi as the light at the end of the tunnel, but unfortunately the long and winding tunnel is just beginning. — Joshua Segall is a management information systems senior.

Careful what you wish for, Brewer
ov. Jan Brewer wants to reschedule the state primaries so that Arizona can play a more prominent role in the election of the Republican presidential nominee. The current date for primaries is Feb. 28, but she wants to move it to Jan. 31. According to Howard Fischer Capitol Media Services, it is all in an effort to draw more attention to the issues facing the Southwest, particularly immigration. There is speculation that Brewer would back off from moving the date, if the Republican National Committee offered a proper incentive to enable Arizona to get
more notice during the primaries. It has been suggested that if Arizona were guaranteed a Republican primary debate, Arizona would maintain its current election date. While Brewer is busy trying to get more press coverage for the dead horse that is the topic of immigration, she ought to consider how much additional flak she could bring in the process. The last time Arizona got an abundance of coverage on immigration, it didn’t work out too well for the state’s image. Arizona nearly stole the title of craziest state from defending champion Texas.
While I actually give Brewer some credit for trying to get her state some more attention and capitalize on the opportunity, she is still trying to draw eyes to the wrong area. Maybe we could try to turn this whole possible media coverage into a positive by showing other states how we’re not just a bundle of bigots who create crazy laws to alienate minorities. But in the end, I guess Brewer will accept any coverage she can get. — Storm Byrd is the Perspectives editor for the Daily Wildcat. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Police Beat By Rebecca Rillos Daily Wildcat
Fighting Irish couldn’t fend off theft
A student approached a University of Arizona Police Department officer around midnight on Friday near Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall to report that his wallet had been stolen. The man had left his brown wallet with two Notre Dame logos on it on a bench near the hall and walked a few feet away to take a phone call. He noticed a large group of people walk by while he was on the phone. When the man returned to the bench, his wallet was gone. The wallet contained the man’s driver’s license, Social Security card, CatCard and room key. There are no suspects at this time.
Pissing while in possession
A UAPD officer was on patrol near the intersection of Speedway Boulevard and Euclid Avenue at 1:30 a.m. on Saturday when he noticed a man urinating on a light pole. The officer asked the man if he always behaved this way or if alcohol had impaired his judgment. The man initially denied it, but then told the officer that he had been drinking. The officer noticed that the man had poor balance, slurred speech and red, watery eyes. The man was cited for minor in possession and was released at the scene.
Forceful encounter on Fourth
A UAPD officer met with a student on Saturday around 2 a.m. who said she had been harassed on Fourth Street, west of Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall earlier that evening. The woman was walking back to her residence hall when she was confronted by three men, two of whom where wearing white baseball caps. The men tried to get her attention by calling out to her and saying, “Hey, come over this way.” The woman continued walking and one of the men grabbed her by the arm. She told the officer she was able to fight her way free of the man’s grasp, but was pushed to the ground. The men ran away when she fell, she said. The woman refused medical treatment for the scrapes on her knees and had no other injuries. The officer warned the woman against walking alone, especially at night. There is no more information at this time.
A UA student came to UAPD on Saturday to report a suspicious email she received on her CatMail account, as well as a possible scam associated with it. The student told a UAPD officer that she had received an email to her CatMail account over the summer about a part-time job opportunity from a sender she had not met before. The student said she expressed interest in the job and she and the sender exchanged various emails about the position. The sender of the email sent the student a check in the mail for $2,980 with instructions that she should deposit the money into her bank account and then send 60 percent of that money to another person listed in the email. The check was from Rojac Transport Services Inc. in Las Vegas, although the check was mailed from an address in Wisconsin. The student gave the officer the check and copies of the emails to place into property and evidence. The validity of the check is unknown and there is no more information at this time.

Injuries give Butler chance to eat up carries Running back slides into backup role after Jenkins injury By Alex Williams Daily Wildcat
Kylan Butler has a big opportunity Saturday against NAU. It just didn’t come the way he’d hoped. Butler, listed as Arizona’s No. 3 running back as a sophomore, will be senior Keola Antolin’s primary backup with the No. 2 back, sophomore Daniel Jenkins, out with a sprained ankle suffered at the Wildcats’ Meet the Team Night. “I always ask him every day if he’s doing all right,” Butler said. “I never want to get ahead by one of my teammates getting hurt. That’s my boy.”
Still, Butler isn’t going to shy away from his chance to be one of the team’s top backs, especially after getting only three carries for 14 yards during his first two years at Arizona. Saturday will be Butler’s first extensive game action after Kylan Butler spending nearly Sophomore RB two entire seasons on the sideline. But Butler isn’t the type to get nervous. Instead, he’s chomping at the bit to get on the field. “I’m anxious to get out there, ready to go,” Butler said. “I feel confident about what I need to do.” Butler has only appeared in one game in his career — last year’s con-
test against the Citadel — so he isn’t working with a wealth of game experience. But he’s made the most of his limited time, learning more about himself as a player with each rep he got. Now it’s time for Butler to take what he’s learned in limited game action and combine it with things he’s picked up in two years of practice. Running backs coach Garret Chachere doesn’t see that being a problem. “Kylan Butler is going to be someone we count on in every game,” Chachere said. “He’s very steady and knows all of his assignments — fullback assignments, tailback assignments. He’s someone that if we lose him, that’ll be a big hole in the running back room.” Butler has been a standout in practice the past two years and has

do something good, they give you another one. They keep feeding you, and you keep eating.” — Kylan Butler
been named the scout team player of the week three times. At 5-foot-8, he also stood in as the 5-foot-6 Jacquizz Rodgers — the similarly diminutive yet powerful running back formerly of Oregon State — when Arizona was preparing for the Beavers last season. Chachere described Butler as a smooth runner, and Butler said that he wants to be known as an allaround running back. “I try to do everything,” Butler said.
Multitalented Ebbele implements basketball skills in role on offensive line By Mike Schmitz Daily Wildcat
Multi-sport athletes like the NFL’s Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez set the standard for athletes making the transition from the hardwood to the gridiron. At Arizona, starting right tackle and former hoopster Fabbians Ebbele hopes to be another basketball-tofootball success story. The 6-foot-8, 305-pound redshirt freshman is arguably the Wildcats’ most imposing player, yet his basketball background gives him more than just brute force to use on opposing defensive ends. “He’s very athletic for his size. As a tackle that’s something I
appreciate too, being able to seal off the end for me,” said quarterback Nick Foles. “Being a lineman is all about being quick, getting off the ball quickly with your feet. Playing basketball, you have to have decent footwork or your going to fall all over the place.” Basketball was Ebbele’s first passion as he picked up the sport in third grade and went on to play his first two seasons of high school. It wasn’t just any high school, either. The Chicago native played at national basketball powerhouse Simeon High School — with NBA MVP Derrick Rose, nonetheless. “I was there with him. We all practiced together,” Ebbele said. “He’s a freak athlete, man. It’s crazy.” After starting his sophomore year on the gridiron, Ebbele turned in his high-tops for
good. Offers began to pour in and Ebbele gave up his hoop dreams for a chance at college football. “I got into football heavy and started my sophomore year so that was my ticket right there,” Ebbele said. “I just focused on football and left basketball alone.” Although his basketball career is over, it was on the hardwood that Ebbele developed the
lateral quickness and explosiveness that he hopes to use to his advantage on Saturdays. “It got my footwork really good, and it carried over to football,” Ebbele said. “Lateral movements and stuff like that are a lot easier.” Ebbele’s a cog in the Wildcats’ revamped offensive line that features one combined start. Despite his lack of experience, the massive Ebbele is using his basketball background — and 7-foot-6 wingspan — to help the offensive line disprove the doubters, and give Foles and the Wildcats offense all the time they need to use their bevy of weapons. “Fabbians is playing with a lot of confidence right now,” said starting center Kyle Quinn. “He’s had a tremendous camp, and he’s finally learning how to use those long arms he’s got.” Ebbele, 10
“I really want to be a hard-nosed runner, more shifty, pick up the blitz, come out of the backfield. I just want to do everything — anything I can do that’s possible.” And if Butler performs Saturday, he’ll be rewarded. Should he able to find a rhythm, Chachere won’t go away from the hot hand. “I’m like everyone else, I’m gonna deal with the guy that has the hotter hand,” Chachere said. “It’s like a quarterback or pitcher that’s in the zone and has the feel. It’s the same with a running back.” Butler knows his coaches’ philosophy, and he said he knows a way to win their trust. “Once you get in there and do something good, they give you another one,” Butler said. “They keep feeding you, and you keep eating.”

European trip could turn into staycation for NBA Mcclatchy tribune
LOS ANGELES — It could be the European getaway that never ended, or at least one that stretched into 2012. Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman were among a small army of NBA players who arrived in Lithuania this week for the 24-team European Basketball Championship, with no apparent need to hurry back. The NBA lockout is about to enter a third month and neither side has budged. That means the Lakers’ Gasol, the Clippers’ Kaman, et al., could be playing in Europe and other far-flung places next week ... next month ... and possibly next year. “It’s not something that’s super exciting to think about,” Kaman said in a telephone interview as the 7-footer made his final preparations for Germany’s opener Wednesday against Israel. “It’s good we’re holding our ground and trying to get the best deal possible, but it’s also not good because it hurts the product. “Fans and TV contracts, sponsorships and endorsements — all this stuff gets hurt because (NBA) owners won’t move at all” in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement.

You’re not able to tailgate then, because you have to work, right? Right.
Are you planning on going to the football game this Friday? Yes.
Do you miss not being able to? It sucks a little, because you can’t cheer with everyone else. Obviously, the media has to be unbiased and you can’t be in that realm with everybody. So, I miss it in that aspect, but I still like it (on the field) better.
What are you most excited for? I work for athletic media, so I don’t sit in the Zoo or anything. But I’m Emily Sharer excited because I Creative writing stand on the field junior during the fourth quarter, and I’m looking forward to doing that again this season. I’m also excited to see how our new recruits come out. We got a new kicker, thank God. (Laughs) The seniors, I got to meet a lot of them last year, so it will be good to see them back out there, and see how the season’s going to go.

That has to be cool, being able to stand on the field; is that your favorite part of the game? Definitely, it’s way different, because I sat in the Zoo freshman year and I loved it. It was so much fun. But you definitely get a bigger sense of the actual game than in the Zoo, where it’s like a party, but when you’re on the field and you see it, you’re actu-
Do you think Nick Foles is dreamy? Well the media team calls him “Sunshine.” (Laughs) Wait, where is that from? (Laughing) That’s from “Remember the Titans,” because he looks like Sunshine from the movie. That’s hilarious. What do you think about Foles? I think he needs to learn how to get out of the pocket and run. I think he is a pretty good decision maker, but he’s not good at executing his decisions. Do you ever hang out with football players or see them at parties? Occasionally. My roommate last year dated a football player, so I hung out with him and his friends a bit, but not regularly, no. Who do you think is the most attractive football player on the team? Paul Vassallo (Laughs)

Summer hits stop the bleeding at the box office McClatchy Tribune
LOS ANGELES — Thanks to the swan song of a boy wizard and encores by alien robots and pirates, Hollywood dug itself out of a big hole this summer. But it still has a ways to go to reach the surface. With the year’s most popular moviegoing season coming to an end, total boxoffice receipts in the U.S. and Canada are on track to finish up 3.5 percent from last summer, according to Hollywood.com. Attendance — the number of tickets sold — will climb a little more than 1 percent for the season, the first rise since 2007. That’s welcome news for the film industry after domestic box-office sales sunk 20 percent from January to April, compared with the same period a year earlier. Following a string of flops that included “Mars Needs Moms,” “Sucker Punch” and “Take Me Home
Tonight,” studio executives said they were counting on the high-profile movies of summer to stop the hemorrhaging. By and large, their hopes were realized as most of their big-budget offerings of the last few months — particularly the final “Harry Potter” film, the third “Transformers,” another “Pirates of the Caribbean” sequel and the second “Hangover” comedy — struck gold. “Everyone was struggling and wondering what was going to happen — at one point, ticket sales were down (nearly) 30 percent, which in our world is panic time,” said Nikki Rocco, domestic distribution president for Universal Pictures. “But fortunately, there were lots of great hits from most studios that were able to turn the business around.” However, total box-office revenue is still down 4 percent for the year and attendance

is off by 5 percent. Industry experts say it’s unlikely that the business will cross into positive territory by late December. That would continue a troubling long-term trend of fewer people going to the movies amid a growing array of entertainment choices and an economic downturn. Despite critics’ lamentations about the continued lack of original content at the multiplex, audiences this summer were still most eager to see sequels, superhero films and adaptations. Six of the top 10 movies were sequels and three others were based on comic books. The two most popular films by far were the eighth “Harry Potter,” which has conjured up more than $366 million domestically since its release in July, followed closely by “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” which has taken in $348.5 million.

But it’s not only basketball and Ebbele’s massive wingspan that’s helped him become UA’s starting right tackle after redshirting last season. Foles called Ebbele a character and said that he could “easily do stand-up comedy.” Ebbele was the emcee at Arizona’s annual training camp talent show and was “absolutely hilarious,” according to Foles. It’s that jovial, energetic personality that Foles expects to translate onto the field and keep him standing. “I think a guy like that at right tackle, if he translates that to the field it means he’s always having fun,” Foles said. “He can play with that type of energy, that’s something that can be special. I really like that about Fabbians.” Ebbele constantly keeps his teammates laughing, while still showing off his basketball skills in the offseason. “Oh yeah, I’ve still got to get out
there and show them who’s the man,” Ebbele said. So who does the man play like? “Compare me to D-Wade,” Ebbele said jokingly. “No man, I ain’t that fast. I just got an all-around game, I can do everything.” Foles, who also played basketball in high school, was quick to compliment Ebbele’s game on the court. He acknowledged his three-point range and quickness for a big man, but wasn’t ready to crown him as the next Dwyane Wade just yet. “Maybe more of a Shawn Bradley,” Foles said with a laugh. Ebbele has yet to play a game at Arizona, and he’s somewhat of a raw talent full of untapped potential. But he’s proven his worth through camp and figures to have a bright future as a Wildcat, his offensive line coach Robert Anae said. “I see a committed player that’s doing his best to buy all-in,” Anae said. “I don’t know what the limit is, where the roof is. I just know that if the attitude is ‘I’m in this all the way,’ then I do believe that potential is pretty high.”

At least the European Championship will give locked-out players a chance to lock up Olympic berths. The teams that make it to the title game Sept. 18 are guaranteed to advance to the 2012 London Olympics, and the thirdthrough sixth-place teams earn a spot in another qualifying tournament. Having “Deutschland” stretched across the front of his jersey could compel Kaman to do a double-take. But the pride of Grand Rapids, Mich., will wear the red, white, black and yellow by virtue of his great-grandparents’ German heritage. “I take a little bit of heat for it,” Kaman said, “but I don’t care. I’m going to do what I want to do.” Kaman wasn’t going to do much this summer basketball-wise until the German team received a commitment from Lakers nemesis and newly minted NBA champion Dirk Nowitzki. That was enough to also land a pledge from Kaman. Of course, having both NBA players on the court guarantees nothing
for Germany during the tournament. Nowitzki and Kaman also played for the German team that failed to make it out of pool play during the 2008 Olympics. Kaman said Germany struggled in Beijing because of poor shooting but also acknowledged that he had difficulty adapting to the physical nature of international play. “It was like a wrestling match to me,” Kaman said. “I was like, ‘Are we playing football or basketball?’ “ As for Gasol, the tournament offers a chance for a fresh start on the court. In the playoffs last spring Gasol and the Lakers were run ragged by Nowitzki’s Dallas Mavericks. The Lakers power forward was also besieged by unsubstantiated rumors of a rift with his girlfriend, and was the subject of finger-pointing by fans disappointed with his play, and a jab to the chest by coach Phil Jackson during the Western Conference semifinal sweep. “I do not think there’s anything to prove on my side,” Gasol said via email when asked if he was eager to put the Lakers’ postseason behind him. “Last season we didn’t perform during the
playoffs as we were supposed to. ... You cannot win every year; there are a lot of very good teams in the league.” Gasol and younger brother Marc are the centerpieces of a Spanish team that is widely considered the favorite to defend its title from 2009. Spain also features Rudy Fernandez of the Mavericks; Ricky Rubio, a first-round pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Serge Ibaka of the Oklahoma City Thunder. “I do think we have a great collection of talent, but there are many great teams here,” Pau Gasol said. “Whether it is the best collection or not, I am not the one who should judge.” Ibaka’s Spanish connection is even more tenuous than Kaman’s German roots; the native of the Republic of Congo played for Spanish club teams before coming to the NBA and reportedly owns a residence in Barcelona. As for Kaman, his great-grandfather Herman Kamen moved his family to the United States from Germany before World War I. When his grandfather was filling out his draft card prior to World War II, he changed the spelling of his last name.
